“The best thing about CSK is we played really well as a unit. And we haven’t changed much (from 2018 edition) and have only two new players in the squad. So I think that is the success ratio for CSK,”Raina said in the video.

He has proven his might whenever the team needed him thus making him a crucial player in the franchise’s success over the years.
